hello @MitchellMc thank you for replying.
Yes unfortunately the sliding door has to stay. we could also introduce some shelving above the dryer also as the ceiling height is 2.7m
This is the laundry I have. I will upload more pictures when I get the house. But now you can imagine the space I have and the linen cupboard to the left. I have steel frames so the linen cupboard can't be knocked out. Thank you.
I totally understand if it is a new build. As my colleague @MitchellMc has mentioned I only recommended the sliding door so that you may use the full space of the laundry. Now that you have mentioned that you have a ceiling height of 2700mm you can definitely place an extra shelf at the top. On the condition that we are using standard-sized cabinets, you would conservatively have a space of 480mm left at the top of your dryer. this is more than enough space to use as storage.
Perhaps now would be a good time to explore other areas of your house that you can use for storage. A lot of people use their garage as storage and use large pantry cabinets to hold their household items. You might have an extra-large hallway where you can put in some narrow cabinets? I recommend exploring the space around your house and see if you can find other storage spots.
